Twitter reacts to Baker Mayfield balling out in NFL debut

David Dermer-USA TODAY Sports

Baker Mayfield made his NFL debut on Thursday. The early returns have been quite positive for the Cleveland Browns and their rookie quarterback.

The Browns trailed 14-0 when Mayfield replaced an injured Tyrod Taylor late in the second quarter. But he led the team on two field goal drives to close the gap to 14-6. Then, aided by a turnover, the Browns scored a touchdown to draw within two. They tied the game on the ensuing two-point conversion on a trick play that ended with Mayfield catching a pass in the end zone.

Twitter had a lot of feelings about Mayfield’s performance.


That much is undeniable. What was a rather boring game in the first half has turned into must-watch TV in the second half. Most of that credit belongs to Mayfield.
